People living in the San Francisco Bay Area are quite blessed with new chic restaurants springing up almost on a weekly basis. Not your typical Indian restaurant, All Spice in San Mateo is one of my favorite dining places in the Bay Area. All Spice is situated in a Victorian House with absolutely charming interior, fusion and mouth-watering food as well as warm services. All the food in their menu is infused or cooked with spices including smoked lavender and cumin scallops and black pepper ice-cream which are absolutely delicious. The cheque is presented in the most charming way in a hand-painted box.
